I am compiling a group of original photos to register with the copyright office. They are typically 5 - 6 MB each. Is there a way to publish the photos to Adobe Reader so I don't need to send over 200 separate emails?
Other than purchasing Lightroom or Photoshop - these photos have not been altered and I don't own those programs - I want to send a single email file to the copyright office along with my registration fee. Sending a "hard copy" (CD) would double the registration fee. I could try converting them into WordPerfect, Excel, or Word, but I thought a PDF would be the most safe since the copyright office cannot alter them.
Typically, you would create a layout document using a desktop publishing application such as Adobe InDesign and put together all of your photos in whatever arrangement you think is best. Then you would use Adobe Acrobat to create a PDF out of that document (Although with InDesign, you don't need Acrobat since it can create PDF's natively).
Put the photos (or copies of them) inside a new folder, right click on its icon, go down to Send To, and choose Compressed Folder. Names may not be exactly the same, as my OS is in Spanish. However, if they are 200 5MB files, I very much doubt that the compressed file will be small enough to be sent by email.
A PDF file may work, but you don't seem to have any of the programs that are necessary to produce one. I seem to remember there is a service in the web for producing PDFs for a fee but as have never used it, I have forgotten the details.
As Claudio mentions, most email servers are severely limited in the message size. Most mail servers I know would not even allow one single email message with an attachment size of 5-6MB.
Ask the recipient if they have another way of receiving large documents, e.g. upload via FTP.
